According to the definition of the Lipid Research Clinic's protocol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) refers to the lipoprotein of density (d)=1.006-1.063 g/ml which contains another atherogenic lipoprotein, IDL (d=1.006-1.019 g/ml). Because metabolic properties are largely different between LDL and IDL, LDL is now defined as the lipoprotein of d=1.019-1.063 g/ml. Recently direct LDL-cholesterol assay kits using novel surfactants (the homogeneous methods) have become commercially available and… CONTINUE READING
